Studio Pyra creates sculptures for appreciation, contemplation and celebration, small enough to wear and larger for the home or garden.
Earthenware Paperclay, palm leaves
'Pyre Born Woman'
"Hands delve into gooey clay
re-joining spirit with ancient remains
of leaves and roots, blood and bones
desert dust, eroded stone
of rain and rivers, silt and sediment.
Once all was trapped in an earthy ooze
now hands sculpt herself a life anew;
wrapped in flames of a paperbark pyre
essence released to galaxies higher
then from ashy pit emerges, purified
Woman, born of sacred fire."
